Across the country, manufacturers are facing workforce challenges. In New York State, help is available if you know where to look.

NYATEP, the New York Association of Training and Employment Professionals, is bringing together workforce boards, career centers, BOCES programs, community organizations, labor unions, and chambers of commerce. Regional NY MEP centers are working with NYATEP, too. Through the SUNY Apprenticeship program, NYS manufacturers are also finding opportunities to train and retain employees at a time when skilled labor seems hard to find.

Along with policies that help to create better paying jobs, there is a need for a better understanding of workforce challenges themselves. In response, the NY MEP has transitioned its Job Board page to a Workforce resource board for manufacturers.
